So much for beets, bears and Battlestar Galactica.

Fans of “The Office” better get their fill of Dwight Schrute now, during the show’s final season, because according to star Rainn Wilson, plans for a spinoff series focusing on his character have been scrapped.

Back in January, there was speculation that NBC might base a show around Schrute Farms, Dwight’s home away from Dunder Mifflin Sabre.

Inside sources said that the show would “centre around Dwight’s beet farm and bed and breakfast where he lives with his strange cousin Mose,” and “Dwight’s life on the farm, his family and how ill-suited he is to run a B&B.”

At the time, Wilson himself said, “We are talking about a Dwight spinoff. It could be really cool. It would be on his farm which would be a bed and breakfast and have a crazy menagerie of characters. It would be even more far out than “The Office.” We’re talking about it. It’s a good idea. We’re mulling it over.”

However, he announced this week that series is a no-go. On Monday, the actor tweeted, “Farm Update: NBC has passed on moving forward with “The Farm” TV show. Had a blast making the pilot – onwards & upwards!”

But beet fans shouldn’t despair.

They’ll get one last chance to see Schrute Farm in all its glory. According to E!, NBC still plans to air the first episode as a backdoor pilot during the final season of “The Office,” which airs Thursdays at 9/8c.
